receives the food and delivers it to the Cagle House. A Faithful staging crew ensures that all of the food is organized for a smooth packing session. Families, children, and community groups pack the blue bags while praying for the children who will receive them. The Friday crew hand delivers each blue bag to a child at Fair Oaks while interacting with staff, children, and teachers. Every person involved seeks to be the hands and feet of Christ through their diligent service and love.
“Everyone is so invested in this mission", says Sue Dimick, a crew leader and board member for Backpack Blessings. “Once you deliver bags on a Friday, you will want to go every Friday for the rest of your life. The kids are so grateful. The return you get is so much more than just delivering food for the weekend. You are making a real difference in the lives of these kids.”
If you would like to experience the camaraderie and fellowship that come with serving Christ through preparing our blue bags, please contact Kimberlee Ackerman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
